IBBY Mexico: Radio and communication workshops for adolescents

In 2016 IBBY Mexico implemented a series of radio production workshops that developed the written and communication skills of children and adolescents: Bridges. The project provided the children and young people a digital platform to express their ideas, emotions and desires. With IBBY-Yamada funding IBBY Mexico is extending the programme and training to 20 adolescents from 12 to 17 years old.

The radio workshops included writing a script based on War of Worlds by Orson Welles, creating book recommendations to be broadcast on the radio as well as creative texts based on themes of interest to the adolescents. A powerpoint presentation on the goals and results of the project can be viewed here.
